Is there any place to store luggage before. and after checkout? The only choices the bus is giving me is early morning and late afternoon. That means either walking the town with luggage or sitting at a bus station for hours. I don't want to do either.
Yes we are happy to store your luggage in our office-Also we will do our best to accommodate an early check-in! Have a great day! Best Regards, Terri Hotel Ranola
